SA-Based Man Robbed Of Vehicle After He Asked Hitchhiker To Help Him Drive

A Zimbabwean man who was travelling from South Africa with his family was robbed of his valuables by four unknown suspects he had offered a lift in Masvingo.

In a statement, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) said the victim asked one of the would-be robbers to assist him in driving the vehicle to allow him to have some rest. Police said:

[On Thursday, 23 June], police in Mazowe recovered a South African Registered Toyota Quantum vehicle reportedly stolen through a robbery in Southlea Park, Harare, on 21/06/22, when the complainant, who was travelling from SA to Harare with his family, offered a ride to four unknown suspects in Masvingo.

Along the way, the complainant, who was tired, requested one of the suspects to assist him in driving while he was resting.

On approaching the Southlea Park tollgate, the complainant and the suspects conspired to evade the tollgate, going through the bushes where the suspects attacked and robbed the complainant of his valuables before dumping him and his family in Glenview 1.

Police said the vehicle was later found abandoned, near Nduku Business Centre, with the car radio and the battery missing.

The robbery was inevitable the moment he gave them a lift. Even if he was to drive all the way, they were going to rob him

They escaped unhurt! that's the good part of it at the same time it's a lesson to all of us not just this family not to offer transport to strangers especially long distances

Why not first ask the spirit to sort the economy first, giving the Bond power over the USD dollar to alleviate the poverty first, and then use it to fight those Zimbabweans who have a different political leaning to yours?.

The family awoke lavishly with the incentivised hope to travel abroad, bath after bath they enjoyed the shower with the expectation to enjoy their vehicle yet they forgot to pray and the Robbery spirit visited them and stole their steering and wheels. What a great way to start a bad day, giving an intruder a steering, that's astonishing, trusting the one you did not fed on the same nipple with. The ambience got amused and everything turned to the dark and the self dug pit crippled them all. Is this sleeping sickness or Sleeping apnea. What a devil!
